(This post is in reference to a post over at the Big Hollywood blog. I won’t link, as I don’t want to direct any traffic over there.)

I don’t understand why anyone would bemoan the lack of movies for “real” Americans, particularly given the box-office receipts for 2009’s The Blindside, among others.

Moreover, I don’t understand the “real” American vs. “fake” American dichotomy. Is rural America any more real than urban America?

I’m annoyed that anyone would want to fall into such a rigid archetype; an archetype based on such an insipid notion – that where I live somehow predicates what I believe, or what kind of media I’d want to consume.
